[audio]The Beauty Premium -- Groks Science Show 2014-12-17 - Chenan Zhang
It might not come as a big surprise that those among us who are gifted with physical attractiveness also benefit in many other ways, from being perceived as more capable, more likeable, and trustworthy, to ultimately earning a higher average income--this effect has been dubbed the “beauty premium”. What’s interesting however, is figuring out what exactly drives this effect: could family background, personality, choice of occupation, or grooming habits account for this phenomenon? Today’s...

[audio]All Tangled Up -- Groks Science Show 2014-12-03 - Samantha Thomas
Particle entanglement is one of quantum mechanics’ strangest predictions. In fact, physicists have been trying to disprove it ever since they predicted it about 80 years ago. Here to untangle the issue for us is Dr. Jason Gallicchio, postdoctoral fellow at the University of Chicago. He’ll help us understand exactly what it means for particles to be entangled and how he proposes to use quasars to test one of the only remaining alternative explanations for this counterintuitive phenomenon that...
